    VERSE (25) -
    Ac 11:29,30; 13:1-3

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:25

    Y Bernab y Saulo volvieron de Jerusaln cumplido su servicio, tomando tambin consigo a Juan, el que tenía por sobrenombre Marcos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 12:25

    Verse 25. Returned from
    Jerusalem] That is, to Antioch, after the death of Herod.

    When they had fulfilled their ministry] When they had carried the alms of the Christians at Antioch to the poor saints at Jerusalem, according to what is mentioned, chap. xi. 29, 30, to support them in the time of the coming famine.

    And took with them John, whose surname was Mark.] This was the son of Mary, mentioned ver. 12. He accompanied the apostles to Cyprus, and afterwards in several of their voyages, till they came to Perga in Pamphylia. Finding them about to take a more extensive voyage, he departed from them. See the case, chap. xiii. 13; xv. 37-40.

    1. WHEN the nature, spirit, and tendency of Christianity are considered, we may well be astonished that it should ever find a persecutor among the souls it was designed to instruct and save! Devils can have no part in it, and therefore we may naturally expect them, through envy and malice, to oppose it; but that men, for whose use and salvation the wisdom and mercy of God made it, should reject its offers of mercy, and persecute to death those who proclaimed it, is the most unaccountable thing that can be conceived. What a proof is this of mere maliciousness, where the persecutor not only serves no self-interest by it, but destroys, as far as he can, all that could promote his own present and eternal happiness! This argues such blindness of understanding, hardness of heart, and derangement of mind, as can be accounted for only on the supposition of a nature totally fallen from God, righteousness, and truth. The Jews crucify Christ, and martyr Stephen; and Herod murders James; and both join together to persecute the followers of Christ and destroy his cause. Reader, consider the consequences: this bad people were permitted to remain till they had filled up the measure of their iniquity, and were then cut of by a most terrible judgment; and Herod was visited for his transgressions in such a most awful way as strongly marked the displeasure of God against persecutors. If a man contend with a man, the contest is in a certain way equal-the potsherds strive with the potsherds of the earth; but when a man enters the lists against his Maker, as every persecutor does, wo unto that man!-he must be torn in pieces, when there is none to deliver.

    2. How true is the saying, there is neither counsel nor might against the Lord! In the midst of all troubles and afflictions, that kingdom of heaven which is like a grain of mustard seed grew and increased, and became a mighty tree which is now filling the whole earth, and fowl of every wing are flying to lodge in its branches. Ride on, and be thou prosperous, O Christ! We wish thee good luck with thine honour.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 25. And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem , etc.] Two of Bezas exemplars, the Complutensian edition and the Syriac version, add, unto Antioch; and certain it is, that from thence they were sent, and thither they returned, for we find them there in the beginning of the next chapter: when they had fulfilled their ministry ; which was the carrying the relief, or the money collected by the Christians at Antioch, for the brethren in Judea, on account of the famine that was there: and took with them John, whose surname was Mark : the son of Mary, at whose house the disciples were met together, and praying; and where Peter first went, after he was delivered from prison, ( Acts 12:12) him they brought with them from Jerusalem to Antioch, being a kinsman of Barnabas; and a man of promising gifts and usefulness, and judged to be a fit companion with them in their travels, for the spread of the Gospel.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-25 - Many
    heathen princes claimed and received Divine honours, but it wa far more horrible impiety in Herod, who knew the word and worship of the living God, to accept such idolatrous honours without rebuking the blasphemy. And such men as Herod, when puffed with pride and vanity are ripening fast for signal vengeance. God is very jealous for his ow honour, and will be glorified upon those whom he is not glorified by See what vile bodies we carry about with us; they have in them the seeds of their own dissolution, by which they will soon be destroyed whenever God does but speak the word. We may learn wisdom from the people of Tyre and Sidon, for we have offended the Lord with our sins We depend on him for life, and breath, and all things; it surely the behoves us to humble ourselves before him, that through the appointe Mediator, who is ever ready to befriend us, we may be reconciled to him, lest wrath come upon us to the utmost __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:25 {From
    Jerusalem} (ex ierousalem). Probably correct text, though D has apo. Westcott and Hort follow Aleph B in reading eis (to) Jerusalem, an impossible reading contradicted by #11:29f.; 13:1. The ministration (diakonian) referred to is that in #11:29f. which may have taken place, in point of time, after the death of Herod. {Taking with them} (sunparalabontes). Taking along (para) with (sun) them, John Mark from Jerusalem (#12:12) to Antioch (#13:1). The aorist participle does not express subsequent action as Rackham here argues (Robertson, _Grammar_, pp. 861-863).
